It's Only a Play
at Jacobs Theatre
It's Only a Play is a hilarious comedy written by four-time Tony winner Terrence McNally and directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien—a celebration of theatre at its best - and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.
It’s opening night of Peter Austin's new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star, his fledgling producer, his erratic leading lady, his wunderkind director, an infamous drama critic and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.
